5 Facts About Emily in Paris's Lucas Bravo That'll Make You Fall Even More in Love With Him

If you found yourself captivated by Lucas Bravo's chef Gabriel on Emily in Paris, you're not alone. There's a reason Emily found herself drawn to him, seeing as Lucas is not only extremely charming but handsome as well. If you're wondering where he's been prior to his role as Gabriel, Lucas primarily appeared in French-language television and films. Luckily, the 32-year-old actor is adding a few more global roles to his résumé, including the upcoming film adaptation of Mrs. Harris Goes to Paris. You probably don't need any more reasons as to why you should join the Lucas Bravo bandwagon, but if you're still on the fence, check out the facts ahead.


He Loves Sex and the City

Lucas was thrilled at the idea of getting to work with Sex and the City creator Darren Star on Emily in Paris. "I adore Sex and the City, honestly. I watched it so many times over and over," he said in a previous interview with Glamour. "I learned so much about things you should or shouldn't do — in bed or elsewhere — thanks to that show. That's why I felt pressure the first time I auditioned for Darren, because he's so iconic to me."


He Was Once a Sous Chef

Apparently, chefs as hot as Gabriel do exist, because Luca used to be one in real life. "I was a sous chef in a restaurant a few years ago. When I first got the scripts, I was like, 'Oh, wow, this is definitely for me, I'm definitely going to use these skills,'" he recalled to Manny the Movie Guy. "And so they made me cook the omelets that I had made for Emily on the show."
